What's for dinner?

What's for dinner is a little late this evening thanks to an impromptu yoga session with my dear friend Nickki! She's opening a new yoga studio in just a few days! Be sure to check out the new place at Firefly Yoga Studio.

Now, what is for dinner? Chicken!
Fajita-lime Chicken with Quinoa
Serves 2 (or 1 really hungry hubby)
This might look a little like dinner from yesterday, but the taste is totally different. Ask my hubby!

2 pieces chicken breast
1 bell pepper (green, yellow, red, whatever you want), sliced
1/2 medium yellow onion, sliced
1/2 cup quinoa
1/4 t. paprika
1/2 t. onion powder
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. cilantro
1/4 - 1/2 t. ground red pepper (to taste)
1/4 t. salt
1/2 lime

Cook quinoa according to the directions (I use my rice cooker). Meanwhile, heat 1 t. EVOO in a saute pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken until browned, about 2-3 minutes. Mix all of the spices together & sprinkle about half over the chicken. Remove chicken from pan & add onions and peppers, cooking until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Sprinkle the rest of the spices over veggies. Add chicken back to pan & cook until just done, about 2-3 minutes more. Squeeze lime juice over chicken & veggies & serve over quinoa. Stir in some cilantro to the quinoa for a little extra fun.
